"The masterpieces of the Persian Draftsmen of the past take us into a serene, sunlit world where everything is bathed in a brilliant golden light; the men are all handsome and the women are all beautiful; the tiled archways and parapets of the building of the buildings resemble the finest jewellery; the rocks are like coral; the trees and plants are always in blossom; the fantastic little spirals of cloud floating in the gold or azure skies could never, one feels, cast a shadow on this landscape." - Publisher's description.
